Artwork does a lot to make a statement in a room. However, it is not just the artwork but also the art frame that makes a statement. Art frames separate pieces of art from the room, and the way frames interact together is an essential component of interior decorating.
When it comes to interior decorating, it is important to consider the impact of the art frames you are choosing for your paintings and prints. Here are a few guidelines to help you create the perfect decorating style for your artworks:
- Texture: An additional way to add interest to a collection of wall art is to mix three-dimensional pieces with your traditionally framed artworks. This technique adds variety to an art grouping.
- Uniformity: When you choose frames, there are two easy ways to make a statement. First, you may wish to group frames with consistent frame colors and materials. For example, you may wish to have the same or similar simple black picture frames to highlight your art.
- Incongruity: However, an opposite decorating strategy may also yield a great result. You may wish to choose frames that are each distinctly different. If you do choose the incongruous approach, you should still make sure that frames contain an overarching theme. For example, you may wish to choose art frames with a variety of shapes but maintain a similar color scheme in order to create a connected look.
These are a few guidelines to help you display your artwork and their frames to best advantage. For more ideas, contact us for information about custom framing for your art pieces!
